Phoenix Trading are always looking for new artists to add to the fabulous range of Phoenix cards that they produce. I thought it might be helpful to share information about the artists that design Phoenix cards, stationery and gifts. Our exclusive illustrations by Alison Vickery are amongst our bestselling designs. Phoenix Trading has now closed and you can now get Alison’s illustrations from Flamingo Paperie.
Alison Vickery’s latest addition to the Phoenix range is ‘Sweet Pea Study’
As well as producing fabulous artwork, Alison Vickery also runs workshops for all ages, as she says on her artists profile,
“As a member of Gloucestershire Art for Schools, I enjoy running Art Workshops for children who always like to see my Phoenix artworks, picking out the ones they have seen or sent as cards. The children are excellent for the ego as they say things like ”you are one of the best Artists in the World”, I then come down to Earth with an elderly group who sometimes nod off.”
Everyone who is an Independent Phoenix Trader gets to vote on which designs get through to each new product launch. So getting accepted as a Phoenix artist is not necessarily as subjective as you might expect. Conversely 1000’s of people will vote on your design.
Another of my favourite designs and so suitable for spring is Narcissi and Pink Hyacinth
Alison also takes part in the Stroud Open Studios in May each year.
